ANGLESEY has seen a significant fall in Coronavirus cases during April

At its height in January, the pandemic saw 459 positive cases recorded on the Island; 282 in February and 284 in March.

So far this month (April), there have only been 68 positive cases recorded.

Anglesey’s Covid-19 Prevention and Surveillance Group has been working to protect local residents from the virus and curb its spread.

The multi-agency team comprises of representatives from the County Council, Public Health Wales, Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB), North Wales Police, Wales Ambulance Service Trust, Bangor University, Grŵp Llandrillo-Menai and Anglesey GP Surgeries.

Dylan Williams, prevention and surveillance group chair and Anglesey Council deputy chief executive, said, “We’ve seen a significant fall in the number of Coronavirus cases in recent weeks; and the people of Anglesey deserve a huge amount of credit for sticking to the rules and protecting families, friends and communities. The last 12 months have been tough on everyone, but hopefully there is now some light at the end of the tunnel.

“Despite it looking more promising, the further easing of lockdown restrictions will pose its own challenges – especially as we see travel restrictions being eased and more mixing likely. Coronavirus has not gone away – and despite the positive fall in cases, we have sadly seen more deaths of Anglesey residents in recent weeks.”

“We all have a personal responsibility to continue to follow national guidance and doing our part to ensure we maintain the current position and can get back to some sort of normality as quickly as possible.”

On April 28, across Wales, another 35 covid cases were confirmed in the latest Public Health Wales figures meaning that 211,389 people are now known to have contracted the coronavirus since the pandemic began.

Here in North Wales there were just six new cases of the virus reported.

They can be broken down as such:

Anglesey 0

Conwy 0

Denbighshire 0

Flintshire 1

Gwynedd 2

Wrexham 3

With the Bank Holiday weekend approaching, the following advice has been given by the local authority:

  • Wash hands regularly
  • Keep social distancing
  • Wear a mask where needed and keep rooms ventilated
  • Adhere to guidance which allows a maximum of six people from six households to meet outdoors, including in private gardens
  • Do not meet other households indoors

The Welsh Government has said that Wales will have completed the move to Alert Level Three by Monday, May 3.
